Avoid Copyrighted Music When Making Roblox YouTube Videos
When making YouTube videos, a problem that can prevent your video from
being monetized (or even posted at all) is copyrighted
music. While most people don't intentionally include copyrighted
music in their videos, there is at least one easy way for it to happen
— music in Roblox games. Read on for ways to avoid this issue
and specific Roblox games that can cause this.
Many Roblox games include music to enhance the experience. However,
given the indie or homebrew nature of many such games, the music is
often used without a license, and is often not legal to perform or
play. As a YouTuber, this impacts you when you record gameplay with
music on. When you upload your video, YouTube checks for thousands of
copyrighted songs. If there is a match, your video is flagged. It
will not generate ad income for you, and you may have to take extra
steps to publish it. It is possible that in the future YouTube could
use information on the number of copyright violations to take further
steps against your channel, so it is best to avoid this situation
Solution #1: Turn Off Music
A quick and easy way to avoid this problem is to turn off music in the
game. There are two possibilities:
First, some games let you turn off just the music, so you can still hear
other sounds. This is your preferred option, but varies from game to game.
Second, Roblox has a volume setting, which you can turn all the way
down. Then you won't hear any sounds, including useful non-music
ones. This will work in any game, but may make some games less fun or
even unplayable if they depend on audio effects.
Solution #2: Watch Out for Problem Games
Some games have more copyrighted music than others. Here are a few
games to watch out for. They have lots of copyrighted music and can
cause problems for your YouTube videos.
